China unhappy with Japanese PM`s remarks on US military base
Beijing: China on Thursday objected to Japanese
Prime Minister Naoto Kan`s remarks that US military presence
in his country is an important deterrent to China, saying the
Washington-Tokyo alliance should not target a third country.
Kan had made the remarks during a debate session with
leaders of other parties Tuesday, when responding to questions
on the Japan-US alliance.
He had also said that he was "paying great attention

believes in sticking to the path of peaceful development.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told a
news briefing here that the Tokyo-Washington alliance, as a

and should not target any third country.
"China is a country that sticks to the path of
peaceful development. It does not pose a threat to any other
nation, and accepts no `deterrent` from other countries," Qin
